Honeywell's Upgraded Low-pressure Plastic Silicon Pressure Sensors Improve Performance And Could Reduce Manufacturing Costs
Honeywell has expanded its industry-leading ASDX plastic silicon pressure sensor family with the new ASDX Series and ASDX-DO Series, which offer pressure ranges from 1 psi to 5 psi and on-board signal conditioning. The on-board signal conditioning allows the customer to remove those components from their PC board to free space, may reduce their acquisition, inventory, and assembly costs, and minimize potential problems from having multiple signal...
Surface Mount Humdity Sensors That Operate At A Lower Supply Voltage
Honeywell hsd introduced its HIH-5030/5031 Series humidity sensor that supports demanding system performance requirements, providing enhanced stability, accuracy, and response time over the entire humidity range of 0~100% RH.
Programmable Mems Shock And Vibration Sensors Simplify Industrial And Instrumentation System Monitoring
Analog Devices is expanding its iSensor intelligent sensor product family with the introduction of two highly-integrated inertial sensors that greatly simplify the complex task of embedded shock and vibration sensing within harsh industrial environments. Based on Analog Devices' iMEMS inertial sensor cores, these fully autonomous system-ready devices are one-tenth the cost and 100 times smaller than previous less-integrated, brick-level sensor mo...
Three-wire differential Hall-effect sensor from Allegro
The ATS617 from Allegro MicroSystems Europe is a three-wire differential Hall-effect sensor that combines enhanced EMC capability with a peak-detecting algorithm that provides design flexibility by offering the ability to sense a wide range of target geometries.
Sensors Provides Cost-Effective Alternative to Linear Encoders in Steel Rolling Mills
MTS Systems Corp., Sensors Division's Temposonics linear-position sensors are now available with an improved linearity correction option, which makes them an attractive alternative to the magnetic linear encoders currently used in a number of rolling mills. MTS' magnetostrictive linear-position sensors are much more robust and cost-effective than incremental linear encoders and, with the improved linearity correction option, are able to offer th...
Atmel Targets Mobile Devices with Capacitive Touch Button Controller
Atmel has announced a low cost touch sensor IC, which brings capacitive user interfaces to price-sensitive consumer and mobile devices. This AT42QT1040 device is available in a 3mm x 3mm VQFN 20 pin package, making it ideal for use in mobile phones and other handheld devices where PCB space is at a premium. In low power mode the AT42QT1040 draws only 31uA from a 1.8 VDC supply, allowing capacitive sensing to be added with minimal impact on batter...
OPTEK Enhances Family of Fluid Sensors with Automatic Calibration Circuitry
Providing design engineers with a simplified means of detecting the presence of fluid in transparent tubing, TT electronics OPTEK Technology has expanded its family of fluid sensors to include automatic calibration circuitry and a preset trip level feature. Designated the OCB350 Series, the fluid sensor with self-calibration circuitry requires only an optical device and power supply for operation. Like the original OPB350 Series sensors, these d...
IP67 Rated Pipe-Clip Temperature Sensor from Semitec
Semitec’s latest version of their CH pipe-clip temperature sensor is not only IP67 rated, it can also be supplied with twin NTCs to save the cost and time of fitting separate safety controls to hot or cold water systems.
Throttle Position Sensor in Hollow- and D-Shaft Versions
Vishay has announced a new throttle position sensor in hollow- and D-shaft versions that features Hall effect technology for applications in harsh environments. The Hall effect technology of the new 981 HE gives it the ability to perform in conditions involving high-frequency vibrations up to 20 G and shocks up to 50 G over a temperature range of –45°C to +125°C, providing a strong advantage over other technologies.
